So Courier works fine even while the load is high? strace's output could
show what Dovecot is doing wrong then. ie. just before expunge:

strace -p your_dovecot_imap_pid > /tmp/dove.log 2>&1

And stop it after expunge has completed.

I'm anyway guessing that it has something to do with the new syncing code..
What filesystem do you use?
